The NBA Playoffs tipped off this past weekend and for the first time ever you can bet on the outcome of the different games, series, and the entire playoffs right here in New Jersey.

Plus, NJ online sportsbooks like BetStars NJ also offer live in-game betting options that allow you to watch games from the privacy of your own home and simultaneously bet on any mobile device or desktop computer on odds that are adjusted as the action continues.

Signing up for a Stars Account

The first step in taking advantage of the live in-game betting options for the NBA Playoffs on BetStars NJ is signing up for an account.

Just click this exclusive BetStars NJ link to get the process started, then follow these four simple steps:

  • Click on the tab labeled “Join.”
  • If you already have a Stars Account from playing online poker or casino games with PokerStars NJ, click on the tab labeled “Login” and do just that.
  • If not, create a new Stars Account by entering your country of residence, email address, new Stars ID and password. Then click the tab labeled “Continue.”
  • Check the boxes signifying you accept the license agreement and privacy policy. Then, choose whether you’d like to receive special offers and updates. Finally, click the tab labeled “Create Account.”

It’s that easy and provided you signed up through our exclusive BetStars NJ link, you’ll be eligible for a sign-up bonus that includes a refund of up to $500 if you lose your first bet.

That’s a risk-free bet you can make on the NBA Playoffs.

Finding BetStars NJ’s NBA Playoffs live in-game betting

Finding the live in-game betting options for the NBA Playoffs on BetStars NJ is even easier.

Anytime there’s an NBA Playoff game on, just log in to your BetStars NJ account and click the tab labeled “In-Game” at the top of the screen under the BetStars logo.

It’s the one directly on the right of the “Home” tab and there’s a clock on it.

Then, just make sure the “Basketball” tab underneath it is selected and you should see all the available games. Underneath each game, you’ll find the number of live in-game markets available. Click on that to view the odds on all the different in-game bets.

You should be able to bet on markets that include:

  • Moneyline
  • Point spread
  • Total points (aka over/under)
  • Alternative moneylines, point spreads, and total points
  • Individual quarter and half moneylines, point spreads, and total points
  • Individual team scoring totals

The odds will change as the game continues allowing you to bet on what you expect to happen next.

In-game betting options can add a little excitement to any NBA Playoff game. These lines can keep you interested even late in the fourth quarter of a first-round blowout.

Plus, in-game betting gives you the chance to hedge your bets a little. That way you can make up for a traditional NBA Playoffs bet placed prior to tip-off you suddenly wish you could take back.

BetStars NJ is an Authorized Gaming Operator of the NBA thanks to a deal made in October 2018. That makes it a great place to try it out.
